Workers’ compensation laws were promulgated to protect and provide certain medical and financial benefits to employees who were injured in the course of their employment.
In the instance of a fatal injury while on the job, these laws also ensure that the decedent’s dependents are provided with the appropriate benefits. The laws also benefit employers by limiting the amount an injured employee can recover from employers.
